Parkgate House would suit someone who would like to visit London but retreat to a more tranquil setting for a good night's sleep and avoid paying overpriced London hotel rates. It would also suit people who would like a longer stay in the area; maybe an extended holiday or a work placement or a business trip and would require more facilities offered by the average hotel. The excellent transport links between Caterham and London makes this a very viable alternative for anyone visiting or working in the London area. The accommodation overlooks the beautiful Surrey Countryside. Guests would be accommodated in a private mini apartment or in our family rooms on the ground floor. The house itself is Edwardian and still retains all the original Edwardian features. Once inside, our guests are totally private. Guests have access to the Sky TV vision package with unlimited access to a large selection of TV channels or to our Netflix comprehensive viewing package. We try to provide guests with as many home from home comforts as possible within the space provided. The accommodation comprises a comfortable double bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a second room which could be used as a second bedroom or breakfast room / living area. There is enough storage for 4 people for a short stay and two people for a longer stay. Ample bedding, towels, linen and more are available if required. Off street parking is included free whenever it is available. We also have a family room and a single room on the ground floor with shared facilities for shorter stay guests or when our apartment is not available.
This accommodation would suit people with a variety of different needs and schedules. Over the past year we have had short-stay and long-stay guests either visiting London and the surrounding area or visiting friends / family or working in the local area. We are very flexible and are happy to provide guests with occasional regular accommodation on a Monday to Friday rental if they are working in the area and would like to go back home at the weekend. Over the course of the past year we have also accommodated several guests on a temporary basis who were looking to buy or rent more permanent accommodation in the Caterham area. We have also accommodated several people looking for short-stay solutions, some were in-between properties, others were working on their own home and needed to find alternative accommodation till the work was completed. Several of our longer stay guests have benefited from our bed, breakfast and evening meal facility which is very reasonably priced. All our guests like the option of being able to prepare basic meals in the privacy of their own space rather than eat out every day, and they all say that they would rather be here than stay in an impersonal and over-priced hotel room. The advertised accommodation is perfect for one or two adults for a long stay and would be fine for three adults or two adults and two young children for a short stay but for four or more adults or parents with older children we would need to provide additional rooms in the house to make their stay more comfortable. We may be able to do this at no extra cost at some times of year, but in the summer months this may not be possible.
